CSM Moves to Opt-Out Emergency Notification System

To ensure that immediate notifications regarding college-related emergencies are received by credit students, staff and faculty members, effective immediately, CSM will automatically register these individuals for emergency notifications.

CSM utilizes the e2campus service for emergency notifications, sending college-related emergency messages to cell phones via text message. In the past, the college operated the emergency notification system under what is known as an Opt-In system meaning that individuals had to register themselves in order to receive these notifications.

Effective immediately, CSM will be moving to an Opt-Out system which means that credit students, staff and faculty will be automatically enrolled to receive emergency notification messages via text messaging. Staff and faculty members need not do anything to receive text messages as the information will be pulled from employee records within Colleague. This information will be reviewed and updated every 24 hours to include newly enrolled students and employee changes.
